A MEMORIAL club has launched an appeal for help in collecting information on local First World War heroes.

Frinton War Memorial Club members plan to put together a special tribute to mark 100 years since the war began.

They are collating as much information as possible about those Frinton residents who served in the war, which ran from 1914-1918.

The tribute will be available for residents and visitors to view, learn more about Frinton’s history and pay their respects to those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

Paul Edmondson, club president, said: “As everyone is aware August this year marks the start of the 100 year anniversary of the beginning of what we now know as the First World War.

“It is very important for our club to properly commemorate those who fell as well as those who served and returned or contributed to the war effort on the home front.”

Frinton’s war memorial is set into the front of the club’s building and features 24 names of Frinton men who died in the First World War.

Members are searching for as much information as possible on those men listed, as well as anyone else from Frinton who took part in the war effort.

Anyone who can provide information on any of the names on the memorial, or anyone with a Frinton connection who served in the First World War should call 01255 677540 or email frintonmemorial@aol.co.uk.
